He would help the Magic, but would help the Suns moreso.

However, none of these teams have the pieces for VC. Not sure if this is totally true, but I heard Cavs offered up Wally and expirers for VC bfore draft day and they declined. I think they are looking for more than just expiring coontracts. They will likely request a nice young prospect along with expiring deals. Suns and Magic dont have the contracts or prospects that would be attractive

Young players and expiring contracts = Portland

Bayless/Blake
Roy/Fernandez
Carter/Webster/Batum
Aldridge/Frye/Diogu
Oden/Przybilla

We give up LaFrentz (around 12 million; expiring), Outlaw (4.5 million), Sergio Rodriguez (If needed, around 1 million also expiring) and draft picks. Maybe throw in "Cash Considerations"

It would be nice to add an All-Star, flashy, good outside shot veteran to this team of prospects. I think he'd also play well off of Aldridge and Roy.
